Parent Prayer

You are invited and welcome to join other parents and our school administration to pray (even if you’ve never prayed before!). Please consider setting aside 30 minutes of your time at the beginning of each week to join us for Parent Prayer as we pray for our school, families, and community. 

We will be meeting outside at the Elementary Campus by the main entrance. 

Every Monday from 9:00 – 9:30 am (except for holidays).

PTL News

Parent Volunteering

We’d like to bless our hard-working teachers with a meal while they are working into the evening to conduct Parent/Teacher Conferences on Thursday, October 28th.  Parents are encouraged to sign up for specific food items.  Each slot indicates the time to claim for Parent Participation Program: 

P/T Conference Dinner   

Falling Leaves + Wet Weather = Street Flooding at Elementary Campus

Help keep little feet dry.  On an as-needed basis, parents are encouraged to bring a shovel and pull the leaves away from the curb enough to allow water to flow into the catch basins.  If the leaves aren’t cleared from the curb, water collects at the entrance to the school driveway and at the crosswalk, causing very large puddles to form.  Time spent on this act of service will count towards parent participation hours.An ongoing list of volunteer opportunities can be found here:  2021-22 Volunteer Opportunities

Km Club Extension

Km Club has been extended to October 20th to make up for some rainy days.  Students are encouraged to run from home over the weekend of the 15th so we don’t conflict with our Pumpkin Patch on the same day.  We will have runs at McLean Park on October 18 and 20.  October 20th will be the final day of Km Club.

Family Portraits Fundraiser

If you have signed up for a photo session, please ensure payment ($50 cash or cheque) has been submitted to the office, addressed to Michelle O’Dell, PRIOR to your photo session date.

Spots are still available for prime photo sessions for our Family Portraits Fundraiser.  Outdoor photoshoots take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to October 23.  This is a great opportunity for families to have a professional photo taken with a portion of the session fee directly benefiting the school. 

To sign up for a session time, please register here:  Photo Sessions (please note the two tabs, for Weds/Thurs & Sat). 

Community Relations

Community Groups

A new online reading plan started this week but it’s not too late to be involved.  The current plan is “21-Day Plan for Busy Women:  A Rich and Satisfying Life”.  Email Lisa with your mobile number to be included ([email protected]).

Supporting our Hope Community

We like to support businesses within our Hope Community and tap into the talent and abilities represented by our parents in fulfilling areas of need around our facility and within our community.  Kindly review the following survey and provide as much detail as you can. 

Inventory of Interests and Abilities


Submissions are open for the November newsletter.  Do you have an achievement or special event you’d like to share? How about a story of wonder and exploring God’s creation?  Please send your submissions to Lisa Klym at [email protected].
